Overview

In an increasingly complex, competitive and dynamic commercial environment manufacturers are under growing pressure to adapt and find ways to cut costs, improve material flows and minimise inventories.  New intelligent solutions are helping to turn the challenges into opportunities to optimise supply networks and strengthen operations. The ability to gain critical insights and anticipate and resolve problems will determine how successfully manufacturing businesses can streamline production, overcome disruption and respond to changing market demands.

In what ways can the digital transformation of supply chains yield value and drive growth?  What is needed in terms of skills and organisational change to integrate and exploit smart technology?  How can intelligence and data be shared and coordinated effectively throughout the value chain? What can we learn from forward-thinking supply chain leaders about managing inventories, reducing costs and increasing customer satisfaction?

The FT, in partnership with Hitachi, is delighted to host this high-level editorial roundtable for leaders tasked with building agile and robust processes and systems in the manufacturing industry.  Join your peers to discuss the most effective ways to tackle the difficulties and prepare your supply networks to ride the waves of uncertainty and opportunity that lie ahead.
